As a long time resident of the Peninsula, I have seen the the area change from a rural, summer retreat to the vibrant and bustling community it is today.
My roots go back to the 1950's here. I was a student at Crescent Park Elementary, White Rock Junior High, and graduate of Semiahmoo Senior High School. I completed my university at Simon Fraser University, earning a B.A. Economics (Urban Economics) and B.A. Commerce (Finance).
I paid for my university education by framing houses in the summer, where I developed my love of house building. I built my first house on the Peninsula in 1976, and have built in every major subdivision since then. I was certified as a professional builder, and a certified R2000 builder.
During the 1990's, I travelled to Japan and consulted for their 2x4 home industry, completing 26 trips, where I learned about building for earthquake prone areas.
My real estate career was a natural extension of the building industry. I offer my clients a strong understanding and knowledge of homes, building, and construction techniques and practises. This strength is a true benefit for both purchasers and sellers. I can help you find a great house, or if you are selling, show you simple techniques to enhance the value of your home. Consultations are always complimentary.
